The mission of 500 women scientists is to serve society by making science open, inclusive, and accessible

About the Fellowship:

500 Women Scientists is launching a new fellowship to recognize and amplify the crucial role of women of color in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Their fellowship will be awarded to women of color who are leading current projects or launching new ones in line with our organization’s mission: Making science more open, inclusive, and accessible. In addition to supporting their projects, this fellowship program provides our awardees with an honorarium, mentorship opportunities, leadership training, and recognition in the STEM community.
